Building of the Week - Mud Brick Huts

I have again started to paint up some of the backlog of buildings I have on hand and this week I started painting up the buildings that will be used in our 6mm Ancients games.  Leven have a range of fifteen models for their Middle East range, this being the first code MID01 and you get four buildings as shown below.

At first viewing before you start work on them they really look like rounded squares with almost no detail at all. However it's really only after you add the undercoat that you start to realise there is more to these models. Indeed it was with the ink wash followed by the drybrush that I actually really saw the actual level of detail and it's hard not to be impressed.

You get a set of four for £2.50 and they really are a quick paint. This suits the whole projects ethos of simpler paint job whilst still looking good. I have added a unit of Companions to the second picture for a size comparison. They are quite small which looks correct to me. I have three more buildings from the range and may buy a few more if it looks like we will need more, not really sure how prominent towns and villages were in ancient battles.

  2. Short and sweet like a donkey's gallop. It's always a good feeling to get something on the table quickly.
